Annoyance Provisions -- Tossed

Just a very brief update.

The Federal Court has tossed the annoyance provisions as they were written in Clause 7.1 of the legislation. The legal reasoning was that the provision was an infringement on free speech as there was no intelligible boundary as to what an annoyance is. The secondary reasoning was that current provisions in other laws and regulations are more than sufficient to deal with offensive behaviour.

Let's go annoy some pilgrims! The photo is of the two individuals that brought the action to the Federal Court, Amber Pike and Rachel Evans.

This is the trouble with many protest type groups, they all spent their time getting Arts degrees, someone should have a marketing/PR degree. Then you would see better presented "front people" promoting the cause, winning more support.

You know I'm right!!!!!!!

Perhaps that is why I posted the picture!

Happy looking they certainly are not.

Marketing and PR might go a long way to sprucing up the cause :D
